I've seen this happen many times do several brands of dvd player.
The one questions if where do you have your dvd player ? In an entertainment cabinet ? On top of another piece of electronic equipment perhaps ?
The reason I am asking these questions is that I believe your dvd player is overheating. Typically that will cause it to stop working properly. You need to make sure it is getting better ventilation be it outside of a cabinet or making sure it isn't sitting on anything generating more heat.
If this isn't the case then please post back and let me know. The more information you can provide the better I can help solve your problem. Thank you for choosing Fixya!
Does the disc still play in other dvd player? My ILO has always been picky to play rentals so I just have a cheap COBY player hooked up to front inputs of my ILO. I use it to watch the dvds, only use the Ilo to record. Saves wear and tear on my ILO but cannot find a universal remote to operate them both and my tv. If it still records okay thats what I would do, just watch the discs in a secondary unit. Sounds like time to start shopping for new recorder.
Open the top cover and remove the laser housing cover. You should see what looks like a door-hole peeper which is the top lens on the laser itself. Using a "lightly" windex coated Q-Tip carefully clean off the top area of the lens and put the covers back on...
If the unit still skips then it's probably time for a new pick-up table and it will require a bit more testing in the shop to determine the failure.
Hope this helps!
first thing i would do i clean the lens with 90% isoprople alcohol and a q-tip, if that doesn't work watch the laser eye again and the movement is the laser look like it tries to catch up??? i would put a dc volt meter on the motor and the motor should stay at lower voltage if it climbs then there is something with the rails or worm gear. let me know what you find out.
